Re: “CORRECTION: Wrong attribution on e-mail promoting Republican candidate

Why not remove the pages with the erroneous info so it doesn't stay in search engines forever? Otherwise, refreshing honesty. Nice work.

Refreshing honesty not seen often.

Re: “School Board considers ban of 'The Kite Runner'

I have not read the book.

Opposing it in the grounds of the ideas it contains will not prove successful. However, if the book is pervasively vulgar and otherwise educationally unsuitable, that is grounds for removal under Board of Education v. Pico.

Also, the ALA giving it high marks is irrelevant. The issue is your community, not some out of town organization's high praise. Especially the ALA, the organization that gives awards to books for kids 12 and up that contain oral sex, etc., with no notice whatsoever.

Speaking of your community, if the book does not meet the school's existing book selection policy, "get it out of there," as the former leader of the American Library Association said.

Consider sticking to the issues instead of attacking the people of Jonesboro, etc.
